This NFL Sunday mostly contradicted initial assumptions regarding certain teams. The New England Patriots seem to have worked out their offense just fine, posting 27 points against a tough Ravens defense. Jets rookie QB Mark Sanchez didn’t fare so well during his game 4 challenge verses New Orleans with no touchdowns and three interceptions. The 49ers proved themselves again as real contenders after dominating the Rams 35-0. The Manning brothers along with the Saints, Broncos, and Vikings remain undefeated.
